MAKE OUR EXTRA VIRGIN, COLD PRESSED OILS IN FULL CONFORMITY
WITH ORGANIC PRINCIPLES AND THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF QUALITY
Our healing oils are born in the pristine
forests and rolling fields of Russian Siberia ("the Sleeping
Imagine yourself in a beautiful
Northern forest. You are standing there in bright sunshine,
surrounded by tall, mighty trees, and the air around you is
so pure, so full of health and radiance, that you cannot help
the feeling of actually being able to touch it, feel it, taste
it. You are finally there. You have found it. You are in a
Siberian pine forest.
(Russian: "Sibir"; from the Tatar word for "sleeping
land") is a vast region of Russia and northern Kazakhstan
constituting almost all of Northern Asia. It extends eastward
from the Ural Mountains to the Pacific Ocean and southward
from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan
and the borders of both Mongolia and China.
With an area of over 3,727,000 square miles,
Siberia makes up roughly 75 percent of the total territory
of Russia. If Siberia were to secede from Russia, it would
be the world's second-largest country, with only Canada being
larger. Major geographical zones include the West Siberian
Plain and the Central Siberian Plateau.
While more than thirty recognized nationalities
live in Siberia, among them Buryats and Mongolians, Siberia
still is a vastly underpopulated region mostly consisting
of wilderness areas untouched by modern civilization. Many
native Siberians still practice nomadic herding (in the northern
regions) or live as farmers and hunters in the region's isolated
areas. Just imagine this: Siberia is so immense that a person
standing on a beach in Maine, USA, is closer to Moscow than
a person standing on the Pacific coast of Siberia.
Siberian pine (Pinus Sibirica):
the Tsar of all trees
The beautiful Siberian pine (Pinus Sibirica)
is truly a miracle of Nature. A typical Siberian pine is about
100 to 150 feet tall, reaching five to seven feet in diameter.
The seed-bearing cones would only grow at the top 4 to 5 feet
of the tree's total height. Siberian pine grows very slowly,
and its average life-span ranges from 300 to 550 years, sometimes
reaching up to 800 years. So, when you are looking at a really
old Siberian pine, you know that it was born long before the
time when Columbus discovered America.
Siberian pine is an inherent part of the rich
Russian tradition and heritage. The people of Russia have
always had a great deal of respect for this tree, calling
it "a healer" and "the Tsar of all trees". Considering that,
as confirmed by modern research, the oil made from its seeds
is a proven healing remedy for peptic
ulcers and gastritis, a natural
digestive and metabolic aid and a powerhouse of beneficial
antioxidant vitamins and nutrients,
we in the 21st century know for a fact that this reputation
the Siberian pine nuts that we use to produce our extra virgin
oil are harvested by hand in the pristine wild forests of
Siberia. There are no cities or factories nearby to pollute
the air and water. There are no roads. Nothing to disturb
the unspoiled Northern wilderness. Our pickers take great
care to harvest only the choicest Siberian pinecones that
will produce the highest-quality nuts and oil. By gently pressing
the delicate Siberian pine nuts at low temperatures (the way
it has been done by the people of Siberia for centuries),
we obtain a richly flavored, golden-colored gourmet oil which
is as delicious as it is healthy.
When we pour our freshly pressed oil into glass
bottles (we believe that glass is the only appropriate packaging
material for natural health-promoting oil), it resembles vintage
champagne. Some say that it looks like liquid gold. Indeed,
a lot can be said about our oil's deep color, delicate unique
flavor and distinctive aroma, but one thing is certain: for
health benefits, it is really worth its weight in gold.
Sea Buckthorn Oil: the Ultimate Gift of
From the pristine high valleys of the Altai Mountains, we
bring you the natural goodness of Sea Buckthorn fruit oil.
Sibu Yidian - the classic Tibetan medical book written
in the eighth century AD - devotes thirty chapters to the
amazing medicinal and nutritional uses of Sea Buckthorn. Sibu
Yidian places great emphasis on the ability of Sea Buckthorn
to tonify Yin and strengthen Yang.
Historically, other cultures have also
found healing, health and balance from Sea Buckthorn. In India,
it is an important part of traditional Ayurveda.
It is absolutely essential in the Chinese Pharmacopeia.
In Mongolia, it has long been seen as a source for indefatigable
life energy - which is why, it is said, Genghis Khan and his
armies drank the juice of the Sea Buckthorn berry to increase
stamina and speed up the healing of wounds.
Our richly colored, extra thick and ultra-fresh
Sea Buckthorn oil comes from super-high-vitamin varieties
of Sea Buckthorn organically grown in our own orchard high
in the Altai Mountains of Russian Siberia. In the former USSR,
these special varieties of Sea Buckthorn were a closely guarded
secret, because they were developed as part of a special nutrition
program for Soviet cosmonauts . Our Sea Buckthorn oil is
the first internationally available oil made from these special
Sea Buckthorn varieties characterized by the highest vitamin
and nutrient content.
Most other brands of Sea Buckthorn oil currently
available in North America are made of berries harvested from
wild-growing Sea Buckthorn plants of inconsistent origin and
nutritional value. Because of very low yields of wild-growing
Sea Buckthorn plants, they are often overexploited and damaged
during harvesting, causing serious and sometimes irreversible
environmental harm to fragile mountain ecosystems.
On the contrary, our Sea Buckthorn oil is produced
from select, highest-grade Sea Buckthorn berries grown in
full conformity with USDA organic requirements in a specially
designed, eco-friendly Sea Buckthorn orchard. Our Sea Buckthorn
berries are picked at the peak of their biological activity
and cold-processed mechanically using our proprietary technology
without any chemical solvents, refined carrier oils, or carbon
dioxide: nothing added, nothing taken away. The resulting
oil is truly unmatched in its purity, potency, and overall
Last, but not least, because we have a
fully integrated growing and production operation allowing
us to keep our costs under control, we are able to offer this
exceptional oil to you at a truly unique price: just $24.95
for a 1 oz. bottle (compare at $35), and only $79.95 for a
full-size 8 oz. bottle (compare at $129)! This is an absolutely
unbeatable price for 100% pure and natural Sea Buckthorn oil
unmatched in its quality and therapeutic potency by any other
Sea Buckthorn oil on the market. You will not find a better
Sea Buckthorn oil anywhere in the world for any price we
Camelina (wild flax): the pride of Siberian farmers
(Camelina Sativa) - also known as wild flax,
German sesame, or Siberian oilseed - is an ancient oleaginous
(oil-bearing) plant from the Cruciferae family,
which has been domesticated and extensively used in Europe
for several thousand years. The seed oil of Camelina
contains an exceptional amount (up to 45 per cent!) of omega-3
fatty acids, as well as a unique antioxidant complex making
the oil very stable and resistant to heat and rancidity.
Unlike any other omega-3 oil, Camelina
oil is perfectly suitable for use not only as a well-balanced
omega-3 supplement, but also as a health-promoting everyday
cooking oil. Combined with a delicious nutty flavor, this
extraordinary blend of beneficial
polyunsaturated fatty acids and high oxidative stability makes
this oil an excellent, versatile overall source of both heart-healthy
omega-3 fats and powerful antioxidants, including tocopherols,
carotenoids, and phosphatides. Known as "wild flax" because
it is commonly found growing together with common flax (and
also sometimes referred to as "false flax" due to its visual
similarity with regular flax), Camelina, while supplying
almost as many omega-3 fatty acids as regular flax, is much
more stable than the latter, and also tastes much better.
From the times of the Roman Empire to the Second
World War, Camelina oil was a common edible oil all
over Europe, and especially in Germany, Scandinavia, and Russia.
In Russia, it was much preferred to flax oil because of its
better taste and stability, and commanded a significantly
higher market price.
Today, Camelina fields are still a very
common sight in the remote farming areas of Siberia. The plant
is very hardy and perfectly suited for organic agriculture:
it can be grown successfully without any use of agricultural
chemicals or artificial fertilizers. Our suppliers grow their
Camelina in full conformity with USDA organic standards.
The process of official organic certification of our Camelina, Sea Buckthorn, and pine nut oils is currently
underway, and we expect it to be completed shortly.
Siberian Tiger Naturals, Inc.: on a
mission to bring Siberia's best-kept healing secrets to the

need of your help
Finally, a few words about the Siberian
tiger - a beautiful, awe-inspiring creature who gave us so
much inspiration that we named our company after it.
tigers are the largest of the living cats. Their average weight
is 500-700 pounds, and the length of their body is 8-10 feet.
The record weight for this species is 845 pounds. These animals
can be easily recognized by their remarkable coat, which is
long, dense and very warm.
Siberian tigers are endangered. Once
freely roaming across the Russian Far East, the Koreas and
China, they were hunted to the brink of extinction in the
early 1900's. Having recovered somewhat in the 20th century,
the Siberian tiger, once numbering as many as 2,000, now has
an estimated population of only 300 to 400 in the wild.
The biggest threat to tigers has been
from the Asian medicine market. Some societies believe that
the body parts of the tiger, used as medicines, will cure
them when they are sick. There is no proof that tiger parts
cure anything, but still many people believe that they do.
In the past five years alone, more than
200 Siberian tigers have been killed illegally for this medicine
market. At present, Russia is the only country in the world
still harboring a significant population of Siberian tigers
in the wild. A system of national parks and wildlife refuges
has been established in Siberia to help the tigers survive
and raise their young.
There is a number of Russian and international
organizations that have programs to help save the Siberian
tiger. All of them need you help and support. We think that
you should know that every purchase of Siberian Tiger Naturals
healing extra virgin oils supports the goal of saving this
magnificent Northern cat from extinction, and bringing its
population to a sustainable level. One of the most well-known
and reputable international organizations working to help
the Siberian tiger is the
World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It would be really wonderful
if all of us could join forces in this important effort.
The eyes of the Siberian tiger are the
brightest of any animal on earth. At dusk, or in the beam
of a torch, they blaze back the ambient light with awe-inspiring
intensity. It would be a tragedy if we allowed that magical
fire to burn out.
